oh my god, this just made me laugh SO MUCH.
The "Idol" judge isn't the only one getting some face time with Cobra. Last season's diminutive finalist David Archuleta stopped by backstage at a recent show, though at least one bandmember had no clue who he was. "[Guitarist] Ryland [Blackinton] met David Archuleta at our show three weeks ago," Saporta said. "[He] had no idea who he was. He's like, 'Hey there, little guy. How are ya?' "

"He looked like a little short-scale Fred Savage," Blackinton confessed. "He looked like a little man."

Blackinton quickly backtracked off that touchy statement about the 18-year-old. "I heard his fan club, the Arch Angels, are a pretty gnarly pack of middle-age women," Blackinton said with a smile. "So, listen: I didn't mean anything bad by calling him a little guy. It's just you can't tell because I'm sitting down — and they make me sit down for all the videos — I'm 7-3. So when I saw him, I didn't even know. I was like, 'Hey, stand up and meet me when you have a minute.' "

After Archuleta took off from the show, Blackinton said he sent a nervous text to Saporta: "Is that somebody important? Did I just mess up?"

The only one to cop to some "American Idol" love was bassist Alex Suarez. "I didn't get to meet [Archuleta]," he said. "I was really bummed out when I found out he was at our show and nobody hit me up on Twitter."

*gigglefits* ilu cobrassss. <3

so dfc's stepsister has a twitter. and i'm a creeper, so i followed her. which, whatever, she has other fans following her, so i didn't think anything of it.

HOWEVER. apparently if you follow her, she follows you back. D: so, now she's going to see me talking all the time about how i want to bone her brother! D: D: D: AWKWARD. and idk what to do. i mean, sure, i could kick her off and block her, but...i can't do that to dfc's (step)sister! whatever. she's totally going to end up unfollowing me once she discovers how annoying/spammy/inappropriate i am. :/

went and spent a couple of days with [ profile] themightybee this weekend! she is awesome, as usual, and on saturday we went to an inside the actors' studio sort of shindig with the lovely angela kinsey. she is funny and adorable and charming and it was exciting. she ships dwangela pretty hard. hee. we also (that'd be sarah and i, not angela and i) ate at the melting pot (YUM) and lounged about and watched some freaks & geeks. good times. (we also were together when we learned about bea arthur's death. so fucking sad. she was a hell of a lady. ♥ RIP *clings to betty white forfuckingever*)

then tonight i saw believers never die 2! it was SO hot and humid in the venue, ugh. but cobras were fucking amazing, as usual, and then metro station was too embarrassing to be real (mostly trace, omg D:, he must be stopped, you guys) and then FALL OUT BOY HAPPENED TO MY FACE. i love them, band of my heart, favorite band ever, etc etc. and they fucking played "hum hallelujah"!!! i was just thinking today on my drive back from rhode island that i was sad that "hum hallelujah" hadn't made the setlist, because it's my favorite fall out boy song. and then tonight pete's all "we haven't played this on this tour, but we want to tonight, it means a lot to us [blah blah whatever]" and the first chords sounded and i lost my shit. <33333 sadly, tho, we didn't get "chicago is so two years ago." :( i would've taken that over "tiffany blews" tbh.

oh god, and "what a catch," askldfjlf;lsdkfj. predictably, i cried. <33333


semisweet: ([buffy] i may be love's bitch.)
the casting for jovi & my epic bandom buffy & angel AU that neither of us has any intention of writing.

i might have forgotten some or messed some up, but i think this is where we left off.

chosen. )
semisweet: ([cobra] here's my philosophy.)
JUST AN FYI: [ profile] getwellgabriel

it's been pimped on the cobra myspace a few times in the past couple of days, but in case not everyone on my flist is as obsessed with myspace as i am, i thought i'd let you guys know. so, go leave him some love.

(if you have no idea who or what i'm talking about - gabe saporta, the singer for cobra starship, had throat surgery today.)
semisweet: (cobra. v. fangs up!)
the cobra show was, unsurprisingly, A++++ awesome, would rock again. going solo was a little lame only because i had no cell service inside the venue, so i couldn't text and twitter as much as i would've liked (as everyone who follows my twitter goes THANK GOD FOR THAT) but otherwise it was superfun!

much to my chagrin, i enjoyed FTSK immensely. i am generally annoyed by jonathan cook's politics (i left him a bitchy blog comment once, lol) so i wanted to hate them, but he was actually quite entertaining (and wearing a twilight t-shirt, which amused me) and fun. dammit! (oh also, the redhead [caleb?] is wicked cute.) i missed hit the lights and sing it loud, but i didn't care about seeing them anyway.

and cobra continues to be made of all things fierce and sassy and fun, and i adore them all ridiculous amounts. but especially gabe, because, i mean. GABE. *hearthands forever* they played everything i wanted to hear except for "keep it simple," and there was silly string, and confetti, and gabe's sweat flying into the crowd and gabe himself flying into the crowd and ryland told us he was sweating his titties off. and i will never not be charmed by gabe's overwhelming gratitude. every time i see them, he thanks the crowd, like, 324992 times and i think it's actually fully sincere every time. i'm such a sucker for earnest.

the crowd was a little crazy, but i survived mostly unscathed despite being squished right in the middle of it. ironically, the only person who actually hurt me was a venue employee; a giant ass venue employee who had stationed himself at the edge of the mosh pit (which unfailingly opens up right next to me, wherever i am, idk if i inspire aggression or what) and who elbowed me quite soundly in the spot between my neck and shoulder, which was fun. :/ but whatevs, i brought sassy back with the cobras and it was excellent.

in unrelated news: DAVID COOK.

ok, that's not news. i'm just saying.

EDIT: oh also, for the record, bill beckett twittering about sports all the time makes me lol.

semisweet: (cobra. g. burn this city down.)
so scott is apparently flaking on me for cobra.

semisweet: (cobra. v. fangs up!)
in which david cook misunderstands the meaning of FANGS UP.

(idk, it's really late and it popped into my head and...uh, i amuse myself, ok? shhh.)

oh, and tomorrow, you can look forward to some righteous, albeit severely delayed, indignation over a minor incident in my freshman year of college that i just remembered to be annoyed about.
semisweet: (cobra. v. fangs up!)
well it took me one hot second to buy this. gabe's bulletin, tho, you guys! how could i say no?!

keep me close to your hearts? )

ugh, i love him A LOT.

oh and HAY guess what i bought the other day for sarah and i?!?!?

\o/ \o/ \o/ \o/ \o/ who else is going?

i feel like i had other stuff to talk about, but i can't remember. :(

oh! one thing was that i watched like 10 minutes of how i met your mother tonight (i've never watched it, but i was bored and wanted to lol at britney) and hey, it's actually kind of awesome! why don't you guys ever mention that???? ;)

i'm KIDDING bbs! i know you love it.
semisweet: (p!atd. spencer hearts you.)
hi bbs! happy valentine's day to each and every one of you from me and also from cobra starship.

ilu all! ♥
semisweet: (p!atd. b&r. friendlier with two.)
three things:

  • I AM SO TIRED OF GETTING SHOCKED (AS IN ELECTRICITY, NOT INCREDULITY, AND BTW INCREDULOUS IS MY WORD OF THE DAY OR WEEK OR MONTH OR SOMETHING, I PLAN ON USING IT LOTS AND YOU ALL SHOULD TOO) EVERY TIME I SO MUCH AS LOOK AT ANYTHING REMOTELY METALLIC. i haaaaaaaaate the feeling of being shocked with a burning passion, and it always scares me, and the past couple of days have just been one zap after another. i got a shock from a pair of earbuds last night. IN MY EARS. DO NOT WANT.

  • i got PRESSIES in the mail today from my bbs mere and bina. thank you both so much, ilu girls like whoa and miss you both to infinitesimal pieces. ♥♥♥

  • i'm having entirely too much fun watching the answers to last night's poll, particularly the "who would you do?" questions. (y'all really like jkras, eh?) so...there will be a sequel later! XD

    (also, my sincere apologies to ryland blackinton, the only cobra i left off the list last night. i had him, and then i moved him while re-arranging the options, and then i forgot to replace him. ryland, bb, as far as i am concerned EVERYONE wants to do you so there was just no point. trufax. ♥)


    EDIT: oh yeah, so this is weird but i saw spring awakening this weekend (LOVED the music, the story was whatever but overall i definitely enjoyed the show) and now i somewhat desperately want to read moritz/melchior. does this exist, anyone? HALP.

    god, i adore cobra starship. and patrick stump. and travie. and mike carden too, why not. ♥

    Sass Attack


    i am totally going into the city tonight!!! now i have to see if i can persuade my completely non-bandom friend to go. :x what's the dress code like at AK, anyone?
    semisweet: (cobra. n. oh my suarez.)
    today in adorable/amusing bandom things:

    Do you think your gay fans are confused about you?

    [Spencer] Smith: Me and Ryan just, over the past summer, both recently purchased our first houses. We used the same interior decorator, and she thought Ryan was gay for the first three months! And I had to tell her that he had had a girlfriend for a year and a half. So -- we have talked about it. For whatever reason our personal taste and preference in art and for videos and artwork appeals like that.
    [Jon] Walker: I think everybody's just too afraid to have a good time. Everybody's gotta loosen up a little bit.
    Smith: We don't care who likes us -- or who dislikes us.
    Walker: And what's the problem if Ryan and Brendon were actually dating, you know? There's not really any problem with that.
    Smith: Because they might be.

    i love them so hard, lol. also this:
    Walker:I slept with Ryan [Ross] in a twin bed less than two months ago! It was the most comfortable sleep I've ever had.

    *SQUISH* (from Pretty! Gay? by way of the lovely [ profile] txtequilanights.)

    next, this bit from an old interview i found with alex and nate of cobra starship:
    If all of your bandmembers were stuck in a burning house, which one would you save?
    Nate Novarro: I'd get the super human strength that moms get when their child is in danger, and i'd carry everyone on my back at once. Then we'd go get pizza.

    so. cute. ♥

    and last, in "idk what happened but dammit" news, i have determined that as much as i have no respect for ashlee simpson as a "musician" (duh)...she and pete are really fucking adorable and i approve. SIGH.

    oh, wait, not done yet! a realization: i have a thing for bass players, i guess. pete, jwalk, and now cash? (also, suarez is in contention to be my favorite cobra, altho i think gabe will always be my fave.) all their bass are belonging to me. or something, idk. here, we'll close this with cash wentzing.
    semisweet: (bsg. 6 is the loneliest number.)
    i'm having a very cobra starship kind of a day. kind of week, actually. and i see them on the 17th! win! \o/

    also, i went online shopping last night, oops! i got this cobra hat and this fob shirt. :D

    about to finish my rewatch of the battlestar galactica miniseries. and it's still fucking amazing, like, the 4th time or whatever this is. ♥

    edit: also, have just (2432545 years late) learned about ivy league and OMFG LOVE.
    semisweet: (fob. yatta!)
    omg, this is the best thing ever (and old, stfu, nobody told me about it). if you're into slash at all, you'll enjoy this.

    alex suarez (cobra starship) is sad that he doesn't get to top more often. [in fic, i mean. obviously in real life he tops ALL THE TIME. *nods*]
    semisweet: (fbr. gabe michael jackson saporta.)
    really really ridiculously good-looking tour question:

    do i care about seeing we the kings, metro station, or the cab, you guys? or can i just show up late and watch cobra? i don't really know any of the other bands. i am aware that the cab exists and are from vegas, much like some other band, what's their name again? and the music on metro station's myspace is actually kind of rad, so maybe i want to see them?


    (yes, i realize i have a couple of weeks, but i'm trying to plan ahead, dammit.)

    EDIT: fyi, i'm not, like, anti-new music or anything, y'all. but i'm making scott go with me and i know he's not going to be thrilled to sit through not only one band he doesn't know, but FOUR, so i'm trying to figure out if it'll be worth his annoyance.
    semisweet: (fbr. gabe michael jackson saporta.)
    attention! breaking news! cobra starship = cutest band ever!

    watch this. it'll make you happy. srsly. for the full experience, you really need to do the dance along with them on the chorus, fyi.

    and i didn't post about it last night, but i LOVED the office. not really spoilers, but just in case... )
    semisweet: (fbr. cobra academy.)
    you know who's rad as fuck?

    gabe saporta, especially being interviewed by
    re: pete wentz having more "gay cred" than gabe does, lol.

    That sounds like a challenge. Do you want to throw down?
    Yeah -- let's see how many more boys we can kiss at the same time. For me, I was just thinking about that, actually. Our record just came out, and I wanted to feel what everyone was thinking about it, so I spent like two hours last night just reading comments and looking at blogs. I saw all these video collages that kids made of those pictures! And they'd make up love stories. And I was like, Wow, this is awesome. I was thinking about how when I was younger -- I totally remember this -- I was maybe 11, and Nirvana played on Saturday Night Live, and Kurt Cobain kissed Krist Novoselic on the lips. On national TV! And I was like, That's fucking awesome! I remember thinking how revolutionary that was, what a statement that was, and especially at that time. I think it's awesome to encourage people not to be homophobic. That's my motivation, to really make it seem like it's not a big deal.

    gabe saporta touched my face once, idk if i ever mentioned it. ;)

    i have the hardest time staying focused on pushing daisies and i don't know why.
